I guess that makes sense. It really looked like blood leaking in the teaser.

I didn't like the OP at first, but the more I listen to it the more it grows on me. And I have to agree that the first half of the OP isn't that special, but once we get into Refrain imagery...wow. Shivers down my spine and all.

The last part makes me cry everytime; it's like it's already the epilogue.

The new OP is great. Basically, it's about Riki's growth.

It starts with Riki's narcolepsy (symbolizing his weakness) and him growing into the person he is now because of his strong bond with the original Little Busters. Then it shows the girls that Riki has helped/saved in order to show that Riki is becoming stronger. After this everything becomes dark. It shows the collapsing of the world, Rin in a really bad state and Riki/Kyousuke/Kengo/Masato becoming serious. In the end, Riki enters the darkness on his own (symbolizing his strength) and then everything becomes light again.

The seemingly 'unconscious/dead' Rin kinda shocked me.

I've been racking my mind over how they're handling the loops with the anime. It feels very inconsistent. At times it'll look like it's looping, but other times it seems to be one continuous story, like with the last episode having everyone recount Riki's successes. What are you doing JC? I can't figure you out.

But at least with this new episode, I'm really excited for how they plan to handle Kurugaya's route. Of course, he can't have any romance with Kurugaya in the 'main loop' (if we're assuming the series up until now has been only one loop) because that's reserved for Rin. But that doesn't mean we can't have romance.

In fact, I think we need to include romance for this route to work. I'm guessing that the next two episodes will comprise of flashbacks of the past loop where Riki romanced Kurugaya. It's the only way it can work! I'm very interested to see where they go with that too. Him remembering everything he forgot, and acting on that in some way? That might be a nice way to lead into Rin2...

The "loop" system was faulty right from the very beginning. In episode 2, you see Rikki remembering of... Rin with her white oufit, Kengo with the baseball bat but without his arm injury and Masato beaten up, despite these scenes are refrain exclusive.
These were once again shown back in episode 26.

They just shuffled things for no damn reason and broke the continuity of the plot.

And that's not only a problem for LB, but EX as well
Spoiler for Kanata's route, early part:

Oh, can I ask that people keep EX spoilers tagged as such? Myself and many others have yet to play the EX routes despite having finished the vanilla game, so I think it makes sense.

What's the deal with this motif? In the teaser it was red. I'm not sure what it's meant to represent.
Gas Leak?
Explosions?
Pipe?

This confirms my suspicion that we're going to have a flashback for Kurugaya's arc. Get ready for romance!

It's nice to know that my faith in JC Staff is being rewarded so far (Now we just need that episode count).

Now if you excuse me, I am going to squeal like a little fangirl for a while.

Pretty much this! I wasn't expecting any romance, and I would have been fine with that, but now I'm just ridiculously excited. Anego is best girl. <3

Does anyone remember Rin's reactions in other routes?
I really felt her "jealousy" extremely odd and shoehorned in refrain ep2, and it isn't like she would see any deep meaning in the fireworks to begin with.

It is pretty much like in S1 though: Rin's current state will be complicated for Refrain, considering she "leveled up" way too much.

If you're asking about in the VN then Rin basically non-existence in other heroine routes,let alone showing any kind of meaningful reactions.I think she did show a little bit discontent in Kurugaya's but nowhere near dramatic as in the anime.

It was just their pitiful attempt to make it look like Rin and Riki will grow a lot closer before refrain kick in because it gonna be awkward if they didn't.

I never felt Rin strongly in love with Riki to begin with, regardless it is in the common or her own route (which actually made me cringe when we got that "let's go out!" mention out of the blue), hence why this change doesn't make much sense to me.

While I understand Rin's feelings for Riki needs to be fleshed out a bit, she is still an easy going character who just has major issue due to her shy attitude towards strangers. Besides that she is comfortable with the LB guys, so having her going jealous despite Riki grows his harem pretty quickly before that point is just dumb no matter how you look at it.

Heck, Komari, Haruka and Kudo clinged on him much more than Yuiko ever did, albeit not as "sexually" as the latter did.
